Baby K’Tan Breeze Carrier {Baby Stuff on Amazon}

As the weather warms up, you may be looking for a cooler babywearing option.  The Baby K’Tan Breeze has the 2 loops of the traditional Baby K’Tan, but half of the loops are soft knit, while the other half are breezy mesh. This will help the air to flow through the carrier and between the wearer and the child being carried.

Any carrier is going to be hotter than not carrying your child, however, because you will have 2 bodies pressed together. But this is a good option if you have a newborn and are looking for an easy carrier option for the summer.  [Read more...]

The Baby K'tan Breeze Baby Carrier is an innovative breathable mesh active carrier that is an ideal blend of a sling, wrap and carrier, providing the positions and benefits of all three. Lighter than any other carrier on the market, the Breeze carrier has the same great double loop design as the original Baby K'tan, but is made of 50% breathable mesh and 50% soft cotton. This mesh/cotton construction will reduce heat and moisture, making it more breathable and comfortable for baby and parent while retaining the same stability and ease of use as the original. There is no other carrier available like it (a ready to wear wrap.) that enables parents and caregivers to comfortably carry infants and toddlers (from birth to 3 years) in multiple positions. The K'tan carrier is ideal for premature babies and babies with special needs. It is lightweight and compact like a sling, yet goes over both shoulders to evenly distribute baby's weight like a structured carrier. The adjustable back support band offers the wearer extra back support and makes it easy to adjust baby or toddler's weight distribution on both shoulders. The exclusive design offers the wearer a 100% cotton carrier that is ready to wear, with NO buckles, snaps, rings or hardware. Extremely simple to use, the secret behind this parent invented, ready to wear baby carrier is its unique double loop design, which gives added security for carrying baby and privacy for mom while nursing. It is easy to put on and take off, and comes in a free carry bag. Baby K'tan, LLC uses all 100% natural cotton free of harmful chemicals, formaldehydes and azo dyes.

Onya Baby Carrier {Baby Carrier Review}

This is the first in a series of dual baby carrier reviews with Jenrose as a guest reviewer. This review post is longer than others because of the dual nature.

Retails for $149, and comes in muted neutral colors. There are two basic designs, the Cruiser, which is made of 100% cotton, and the Outback, which is made of a sporty nylon and mesh. We will focus on the Cruiser. The carrier also includes a special feature to make it very simple to strap a baby to an adult chair safely. [Read more...]

Babywearing (Paperback)

By (author): Maria Blois

If someone told you they knew a secret to help your baby sleep better, cry less, and learn better, you would certainly be interested... Babywearing, the practice of carrying baby in a soft carrier close to our body as we go about our daily business, is parenting's best kept secret. Good things happen when we wear our babies. Babies who are worn cry less, are more calm and content, sleep more peacefully, nurse better, gain weight better, enjoy better digestion, and develop better. Babywearing benefits parents! It enhances parent-baby bonding, is practical, facilitates breastfeeding, helps working parents reconnect, and makes transitions from one caregiver to another easier. But most importantly, it allows you to meet your baby's need to be held while allowing you to meet your need to get things done! Anyone can wear baby - mom, dad, sister, brother, grandparents, baby sitters, and day care workers. The more baby is worn the happier baby is. And, a happy baby makes a family happy. In this book you will:
*Learn about the benefits of babywearing.
*Hear from babywearers all over the country.
